"Little Kulala review"
The main camp manager a chap in his 50-60's was quite rude to me when we arrived.
I find the way wilderness put pressure on you to do the feedback forms uncomfortable, this applied at all there camps" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
"Incredible experience at Little Kulala "
The experience saw us fly from Cape Town to Windhoek, where we were met by the team at Wilderness and ushered to our private lounge. Then taken to our charter flight to Geluk Airstrip. Anton our amazing guide was waiting for us at the airstrip with champagne on arrival.
We were then taken to Little Kulala where the incredible team there welcomed us through song and dance. From here the whole experience kept getting better and better as every member of the team there did everything they could to ensure we were having a great time.
Emcie was wonderful, constantly organising surprises for us whilst this was our honeymoon. From private dinners in the wine cellar and surprise private buffet lunch in a lookout in the desert we could not have asked for anything more.
The daily activities were amazing with Anton showing us around and sharing a wealth of knowledge on all things Namibia.
The location and facilities where fantastic with beautiful rooms and decor amid an incredible surrounding of Namib Desert.
A special mention goes to the whole Little Kulala and Wilderness team who all would introduce themselves to us throughout our time there check in with us frequently to ensure we were looked after.
Thank you Emcie and team for the trip of a lifetime." See all these reviews: 2n in Namibia
"Little Kulala review"
And I would mention that our guide whilst there, Ben, was really first class - exceptionally attentive but also an excellent guide - we really thought we got everything we could out of the different areas in the reserve and national park.
The balloon safari was also flawless. We were lucky enough to go right down the valley towards Sossusvlei, and having breakfast under one of the dunes must be one of the best breakfast settings I've ever had!" See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 3n in Zambia
"The lodge and the room were superb"
The dunes were interesting , but one sand dune is pretty much like the next! The balloon ride was good, apart from the burning head, but I would think more spectacular over the Serengeti or the busanga plains. The staff cant do enough for you. But three night is more than enough. There are lots of oryx and ostrich but little else. The sand storms are specular.
Landscape photography is great" See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
We did try sleeping on the roof one night but it was too cold and windy. There were a lot of strong winds whilst we were there, and several sandstorms including whilst visiting Sossusvlei which was an experience in itself!
The staff very incredibly helpful and kind when one of us fell ill and had to cancel a trip at our next stop after Little Kulala. The staff presented Mike with a large Birthday cake and rousing singing. It really is a wonderful place. The activities with our guide were very good and included the trip into Sossusvlei and a guided walk in the area around the lodge." See all these reviews: 17n in Namibia
"Wonderful experience at Little Kulala"
"Little Kulala: Luxury Amongst Amazing Dunes"
Owing to my bad knee, we asked for a suite closest to the main reception/dining areas, which we enjoyed for the last two nights of our three-night stay. That turned out to be a wise move because our first-assigned unit was quite far from the public spaces, and reaching it requires walking on an uneven sandy path.
Activities at LK center around the mighty dunes of the Namib Desert, and we did splurge for a breathtaking hot air balloon ride to enjoy unique aerial vistas. The civic-minded owner of the balloon company operates a tuition-free school for children of his employees and nearby residents. We absolutely loved our time at the school, and contributions (both monetary and supplies) are most welcomed.
Our other LK activities were a morning drive through the dune corridor to visit Big Daddy, et al., a short walk through Sesriem Canyon, and an ATV ride around the LK "neighbourhood" . . . all thoroughly enjoyable!" See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia; 3n in Rwanda
"Memorable Little Kulala"
The team that looked after us are a group of beautiful people who quite clearly love their jobs and their guests - attention to detail is evident everywhere! Our welcome was special and uplifting. We loved spending time with our guide Alfred, he is a knowledgeable and serious man with a lovely wit :-)
The food was delicious - the crowning glory - the evening Boma!
This camp is a must on any trip to Namibia!" See all these reviews: 9n in Namibia

Our guide Ben was very helpful and it was a pleasure to be with him." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
The location is stunning. The quality of everything was superb. Customer service was excellent. We were made to feel so welcome and the staff were very sensitive to our circumstances. Food was delicious.
The drive to the sand dunes was spectacular and the experience of climbing them was special. The guide was brilliant and made it so much fun.
Drinks served on the drive in the evening sunset was a lovely experience. The staff presented us with a birthday cake and all joined in to sing. It was beautiful. An absolutely wonderful place in every way." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
